SERESC Summer Academy for Kids
Coming July 2015! Registration opens March 10!
SERESC Summer Academy for Kids…Inspiring Middle School Learners
True to the SERESC Mission and Vision, the month of July is dedicated to Summer Academies for Kids. Middle Schoolers are naturally creative and curious, and the SERESC summer programming offers an environment where “fear of mistakes goes on holiday” and the natural spirit of exploration and creativity is encouraged. The SERESC Summer Academy for Kids offers half day sessions (either 8:30 – 11:30 OR 12:30 – 3:30) or a combination of two offerings for a full day of inspiration. Each week Academy Leaders who are talented, creative and spirited individuals will feature a new and different theme.
